Notes from the Winemaker:
The grapes come from the Juegabolos (Bowls Players) terroir planted by Tomás Esteban in 1988. The unique character of this terroir is that the top 1.5 metres of soil is gravel. This creates perfect conditions for ripening in a very healthy environment. Lower down in the soil profile there is clay which provides the vines with all the nutrients and water that they need. The production is 4,000 kg per hectare. It is totally free of artificial fertilisers and systematic chemical treatments.
The fermentation process is very gentle without intensive extraction in stainless steel tanks with a 10,000 kg capacity. During the process no enzymes or yeasts are used that do not originate in the grapes.

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points & Editors' Choice - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Toasty aromas suggest maple, along with a note of sawdust to accompany earthy berry scents. A rich, pure palate is intense but shows balance and comportment. Blackberry, cassis, peppery spice and integrated oak flavors are detailed, with a smooth finish. Drink this full-bodied wonder through 2028." - MS (Nov 2017)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:

"This bold red delivers sweet fruit flavors of black raspberry and cassis, backed by vanilla and toasty oak hints and accented with floral and mineral notes. Round and plush, this is supported by firm tannins and juicy acidity. Drink now through 2024. 250 cases made. " - TM (Jun 2017)

93 Points - James Suckling:

"Ample fruit, enough structure and impressive concentration. Dark plums and cherries pervade the nose and palate amid more savory graphite and coal smoke. Bold and delicious. Best from 2020." - (Jul 2017)
